"Comfortable Bed, Very Small"
I would stay at the hotel again. The staff was very friendly. You are only about 1 block to the subway. The free breakfast is very good but it is not at the hotel it is at a cafe down the street. I didnt mind that. The bed was very comfortable and the room was clean but VERY small. I am 5 foot 9 inches and laying down i could touch both walls at once! […] it might be hard for a long stay but i was only there 2 nights and not in the room often so i didnt mind. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Small Rooms, No parking"
The location is walkable and the free breakfast is nice. The rooms are very small and beds are very hard. If you plan on driving be prepared to cirlcle around for a whlie to find parking.Genuine Expedia guest review
"best hotel bathroom ever"
We read the reviews before we chose to stay here, yes the rooms are small, and clean and comfortable. The views from the roof deck are an amazing 360 degrees. Lots of ice in the basement kitchen. Wonderful spa-like towels. We'll definitely stay here again. The Station Cafe breakfast was very good, I liked the Greek yogurt with fresh fruit.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room had no Fridge, Microwave and not even an Iron so it was disappointing.Genuine Expedia guest review
The room is SMALL! About the size of my closet at home, but it was spotless and immaculate. The bed and linens were heavenly, the view was incredible, and it was so quiet! It was modern, unique, and a great price. Plus, breakfast at the cafe was delicious. I will definitely be staying here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not Bad for the Price"
Yea, it's a small room, but what do you expect in NY? I was travelling by myself and this spot was perfectly adequate... Not far from the Subway, not far from the Barclays Center, within easy walking distance of restaurants, etc. --- The room was clear, amenities relatively new, and the staff passably friendly --- I'd stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Extremely convenient for the price"
No food on site, but great and clean room very close to the subway. Really enjoyed the experience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice, small, convenient"
This place was small, no lobby, no real amenities. But the room was fine for what we wanted: a place to crash after running around Brooklyn and Manhattan all day. Desk and cleaning staff were very nice and friendly. On the downside, our room was never cleaned during our four nights there, which means no clean towels. We were out of the room all day, […] every day, for hours at a time, and we would return to see the cleaning staff in the hallway, but our room was never touched. It was a little disconcerting, but we just kind of dealt with it. Overall, if you just want a room to crash in at a place that's convenient to the subway, downtown Brooklyn and Park Slope, it's perfectly fine. As former Brooklynites, we were very familiar with the neighborhood, so we felt safe. It is a neighborhood in transition, and in a few short years it will be very different than it is now. If you're low-maintenance and easy going, this place is just great. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Problems this time staying here"
I have stayed at this hotel before and been happy. The rooms are tiny, but clean. This stay was unsatisfactory, however. The room layout of this room was such that a wardrobe (leaning forward a bit dangerously) blocked the door to the hallway. The staff told me that a parking garage was just a block away, and gave me a coupon. The lot was @ 10 blocks […] away and the coupon was outdated. There was a lot of noise from other hotel guests in the halls or foyer. The toilet clogged. The bed was uncomfortable--too soft. I could feel the support bar through the mattress, which essentially kept me on one side of the bed, only. The layout of the bathroom was such that the shower door opened only halfway. I have rated this hotel in the 3-4 range before, but not this time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel room was very tiny but other than that, I had no problems with the room. The staff was friendly. The hotel and the room were very clean. We were not bothered and for the most part it was quiet. The hotel is away from traffic so you don't hear the traffic as you would in Manhattan. The neighborhood is not clean but it is quiet. We weren't bothered […] by anyone even when walking back to our room late at night. We enjoyed the continential breakfast with the restaurant around the corner. There were a lot of options and the service was good. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Rooms adequate . But tiny.... Poor bathroom lighting...needs bedside Igniting.... Staff friendly.... Good location....Genuine Expedia guest review
It's a newer almost boutique hotel. Yes they are the smallest rooms ever! But modern bathrooms and very clean. Biggest complaint was no bedside lamp. Had to get out of bed to turn off the ceiling light which I hate ceiling lights. Too bright. And flat screen tv doesn't swivel I had two different rooms and neither one the tv faced the bed so you'd have […] to stand up to watch. And no chair! Telephone is in a drawer! Really small rooms again but this was near my son and I was able to walk into nice areas surrounding. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Awesome location, good breakfast"
Small rooms but clean and comfortable, great location and awesome breakfast. Good for the money.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I enjoyed my short stay, I can't give a full review though since I didn't stay for the breakfast. Sure it's a small room but it did the job. Clean, friendly staff and conveniently located near 5th avenue and all the fun shops, restaurants and cafes it has to offer. Would recommend it to my friends back home in Sweden.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cold, thin walls, not good in winter!"
Windows are drafty, walls are so thin you hear everything in the next room. The staff were all very nice and the breakfast cafe was really good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were barely at the hotel because of the size of the room. It was MINI pocked size! Plus breakfast was a voucher to get a muffin and a coffee in a cafeteria somewhat close to the hotel. Service was great though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good, clean, cheap."
It had what we needed, a clean bed, good shower and a budget friendly price. Good location, near a subway stop and park slope. Go for it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not recommended for business trips"
The hotel's location, staff, and overall condition were fine. Unfortunately, this was a business trip for me, and there were two things in particular that were really tough to work around. First, the "desk" was a side table about the 12x18 and about 30 inches high, and there was a folding chair. This did not make for comfortable conditions to try and […] write/email/etc. There also was no lobby to sit in for this type of work (that I was aware of). Also, there was no iron or ironing board in the room to get ready for work the next day. When I called the front desk, they were very prompt, but were only able to provide a mini-ironing board. I would use this hotel again for vacation, but will not be staying again for business. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Compact but clean"
The hotel was nice enough, everything was clean, but it was close quarters. There is no lobby, so if you're planning on meeting up with friends, pick a nearby restaurant to start the night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good price for area and for my needs."
Good location,price and people,good breakfast,have to walk a couple of blocks foe a local cafe,but comes handy since we have to take the sub in union station.Genuine Expedia guest review
Basic hotel in Brooklyn - small rooms but clean. No onsite parking - street parking only. No onsite restaurant - down the street. Cable was very limited - eg no CNN. TV remote was missing from room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I didn't think a room could be so tiny !!"
My wife and I have stayed in nearly a dozen different hotels in Brooklyn. We are always looking for the most competive rates based on cleanliness, room size, and convenience. The rate at the Union Hotel was competive and we hadn't stayed there yet, so we gave it a try. Really, the only positives is that it is in a convenient location near Park Slope […] and The Barclay's Center, and the hostess was friendly. The negatives are too glaring. There is no lobby, just something like a hostess at a podium desk. I could see my breath in the cold elevator. The rooms are the smallest I've ever encountered. I felt like I was in a youth hostel in europe during my backpacking days 30 years ago. The thru-wall heater was literally inches from the bed and it sounded like I was sleeping next to a loud dryer. The cold shower which never got even warm really brought back fond memories of camping in Spain. - You get the idea! Honestly...never again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
goes without saying the price can't be beat. some noise filters through the walls, and the heater thermostat was so sensitive that it seemed to kick on every 5 minutes, and was pretty noisy. But again, considering the price, was well worth it. Would just recommend to the staff to hand out a brochure of info about what hotel includes (had to ask if they […] had ice machine/microwave in the building), and amenities nearby. Turns out there's an indoor rock climbing gym on the same block, that info would have been useful ahead of time for planning purposes (as well as other amenities in the area). great for single person/traveling alone, a couple wouldn't be too bad, but not great for a family. Make sure you don't get a room near a stairwell (banging doors) or front desk (too much foot traffic/noise). Would def recommend! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Second night, the sink did not drain.First night, my colleagues room had an awful smell, not identifiable. Breakfast was good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"it is not an hotel"
The room was to smaaaaaallllll. You open the door and the bed is right there . Did never said in their advertising that you had to leave the building and walk to a cafe 3 blocks away to get your breakfast. Overall I was not satisfy at all.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A place to sleep, thats about it."
We chose this hotel because we were going to the Barclays Center for a couple of basketball games. It is about a 10-15 minute walk. Not bad at all. There are a couple of hole in the wall bars along the way. The room itself was very clean but also VERY small. It was a small bathroom with a bed, thats it. There wasn't even a path to walk on the side of […] the bed, it was that small. So it is in a great location but definitely just a place to sleep. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Avoid this hotel at all costs! Budget is budget, but this isn't worth it... A cheap room typically means smaller size and less amenities. If you've traveled through Europe on a budget then you know what I mean. However, budget hotels shouldn't include dirty, unwashed and stained sheets and covers, a clogged sink, a staff that is either helpless or has […] attitude and also a list of things promised (and presumably that you pay for) that aren't included (like a safe, minibar, fridge...). The website shows a large lobby, what looks like a bar on a rooftop garden, and also a dining area... don't expect anything like that. Also night security is lax and the walls are thin and some rooms looked literally like they were 3 feet from the front door on the first floor. Glad I was upstairs at least. Save up for a nicer option! Anything! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

The hotel is clean and well located and very affordable. The breakfast is very nice as well. My room was small but was well worth the price. Thank you and we'll see you next time we are in Brooklyn.Genuine Expedia guest review
"solid hotel, sucky cable,"
room was very small...but the kicker was the VERY limited cable tv offering; no local channels, and a spattering of minor cable options.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel room was small (that was to be expected). It was loud! Drunk people coming in at all hours of the night proclaiming (in very loud voices) how drunk they are. Convenient location but horrible night's sleep.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was small, but as described and very inexpensive. Free breakfast at cafe 3 blocks away, good location for access to restaurants and subway. As describedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
TV was high on the wall to the left of the bed. AC/heating unit under the window stuck over the bed by a few inches. Bathroom was oddly huge compared with tiny room. There's only a tiny desk in the lobby and no chairs, so it gets clogged when others are checking in. Staffers in hotel were friendly. Everything was clean. Location is a bit on the edge […] of the heart of Park Slope. Barclay's Center is a few blocks away. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Breakfast at nearby diner was wonderful. Extremely small room approx 8 x 10. Bed shoved against a wall with maybe 2 foot aisle on other side. Only way to watch TV was to stand against the door. Clean room but ragged towels. At times unattended lobby. If you need an expensive place to lay your head down, this may be for you!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"extremely convenient to NYC's Barclay's Center"
This was a great location for an overnight stay after we attended a concert at the Barclay's Center. The room was very clean and the front desk staff were very polite and helpful. Guests do have to be prepared for the small size of the hotel and the rooms, though. Luckily, my husband and I don't mind being in close quarters with one another! The room […] was so small that we had to negotiate around one another very carefully to move from the bed to the bathroom and back. And, when you're 7 months pregnant, small spaces like this can present even more of a challenge! Also, at initial check-in the front desk person had a little bit of trouble finding the reservation and acted as though he were a bit confused about the hotels.com confirmation number. We got past all that and our stay -- overall -- was quite pleasant. There was a tall wardrobe with multiple drawers in the room, so there was generally sufficient space to put away things. But, in a room this small, some additional well-placed shelving in the sleeping area and in the bathroom, as well as an extra small folding table, wouldn't hurt!

"Pros and cons--be prepared"
Pro: Location convenient to subways into Manhattan; Great complimentary breakfast offerings at nice cafe 2 blocks away with very friendly staff who made us feel welcome each morning; comfortable bed; clean room Con: No bedside lighting--only light was overhead, with light switch by the door; TV channel lineup was quite strange--no networks, and only […] about 10 cable channels, inc BBC America and the Tennis channel; Small room, which would not be an issue except the armoire was very inconveniently located, making it impossible to move around; we were excited about what looked like a rooftop terrace on the website--doesn't exist! Overall, OK for the money, but next time we'll stay at the Holiday Inn Express 2 blocks away. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"World's Smallest Rooms"
Not a bad place to stay for a night. I wouldn't want to be there for more than a night or two though. The rooms are small, even for NYC standards. The hotel is about an 8 block walk from the Atlantic Ave MTA station, so you can easily get around everywhere you need to go.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Simple European-style pied a terre"
Loved it. Perfect for what it is--a tiny clean room for comfortable night's sleep. Simple, not luxury. Modern style. Just outside of the trendy Park Slope areas, but easy walking distance to them. Parking garages within several blocks. No-parking fire hydrant space in front of hotel made for easy car-service pick up and drop off. Has an elevator (some […] hotels in this price range are walk-ups). Perfect for simple overnight stay. Rooms are tiny, Comforter/bedspread. Like small European hotels. I will stay here again. Very satisfied. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good deal close to Park Slope"
For those visiting family or friends in Park Slope this hotel is one of the best deals around. We didn't find anything less expensive. The hotel is newly completed. The bedroom and bath are immaculate. Parking is available on the street, although the neighborhood might make some nervous who are unfamiliar with Brooklyn . There are a few rough edges […] that should be corrected: inadequate lighting in the room, with a couple of fixture outlets covered by blank plates; dark hallway apparently due to a burned out light fixture bulb. Front desk was generally helpful but was not able to mail us a couple of items we accidentally left behind in the room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good choice for budget-minded travelers"
Even though I knew from reading on this site before that the room would be small, I wasn't quite prepared for how small. It is really only adequate for sleeping. This hotel is more like a hostel, so it should be thought of that way. It's a great place to park your stuff while you're out in the city and to fall asleep at the end of each day, but people […] who need more space for young children or to work in the room should probably consider spending extra for a more traditional hotel. It would also be nice if there was a vending machine or ice machine on the premises so guests didn't have to walk a block down the street to buy a cold drink. On the other hand, there are great things about the hotel. It is very competitively priced and close to Manhattan (20 minutes to Canal Street on the R subway line). The hotel staff are generally friendly and helpful. The free breakfast is provided at a neighborhood restaurant that has excellent food and service. Several other restaurants in the neighborhood provide great food at decent prices including one with 24 hour delivery to the hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good enough for short trip to NYC"
If you plan to visit NYC for a short trip (3-4 nights or less) and don't want to pay Manhattan rates, then the Union Hotel is a decent option. It's a good deal conveniently located on the edge of Park Slope, a desirable neighborhood in Brooklyn, and its about 20-30 subway ride to midtown Manhattan. My fiance and I stayed on night for a fun trip to NYC […] and we had a room with a single king size bed. Though the room was quite small, its was clean. The only other drawback is that our window faced the adjacent street from the second floor. This made it difficult to have privacy without completely pulling down the shade, which blocks out virtually all sunlight. In terms of service, it was hit or miss. The attendant we met upon arrival was not pleasant, though the one we dealt with when leaving the hotel was quite friendly. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great value hotel with Manhattan access"
Clean, updated, comfortable room and bathroom. If traveling for business and/or needing desk space and room to spread out, this hotel may be challenging. First floor was noisy with comings and goings. Would stay there again, but would request a room on an upper floor. Hotel has no parking. Beware of any NY on-street overnight parking.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Brand new, good value, very small rooms"
The hotel is convenient to the subway (Union St to the south and Atlantic/Pacific to the north) on an industrial block, but just one block from 5th street (more shops/ restaurants). The hotel has been recently renovated and is very clean. The rooms are tiny but, hey, who goes to New York to stay in the hotel? The hotel gave us breakfast at a coffee […] shop down the street. There are no coffee makers in the room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
